Danny Heldenbrand would be very interested.

The late Daviess County native, who served 18 years as a county commissioner, was interested in all things Daviess County. He was a GHS alum who took pride in farming and helping people before he suddenly passed away from a heart attack in 2011. Danny understood how many times when you take the initiative and propose something, the initial “good ‘nuf” can actually evolve

Just Say ‘No’ to Mr. Kroenke

You could see this coming.

I believe “blackmail” is the appropriate word. There’s a power play underway to squeeze more of our tax dollars to benefit the already wealthy.

Billionaire Stan Kroenke, who owns the St. Louis Rams professional football team, announced a partnership to put a privately financed, 80,000-seat stadium in the Los Angeles area if voters there approve.

Dw.cdrThis stadium is part of plans to develop a 238-acre

Remembering Dizzy

With windchill temperatures dipping below zero, it may seem odd to talk about baseball. But that’s one of the sport’s strengths – the promise of spring while in the grip of fierce winter. Another compelling thing about baseball is its history, woven into the fabric of our society.

Dizzy.

Dw.cdrWith this one word, you immediately travel back decades in time, at least for Cardinals baseball fans.

Dizzy Dean stands among

Before Making Up Your Mind…

Dw.cdrBefore you make up your mind about the City of Gallatin taking control of the cupola and adjacent building on the east side of the business square, there is much to consider.

The catalyst for ownership change was private business.

The idea for city controlling the cupola building originated with Dean Hales. But, really, every owner with property on the square has a vested interest. When buildings are abandoned, the

An Asset or Albatross?

Some talk around town has City Hall taking the lead in determining the future of the cupola building on North Main. That’s good!

City Hall taking charge of this problem property makes sense. We’ve got good people serving on the board. We should encourage our aldermen to take a leadership role to coordinate what’s to happen. With the city’s commitment comes stability and an opportunity for individuals and community groups

Are We Smiling?

Dw.cdrWhat do you think about whenever you walk or drive along the east side of the Gallatin square?

It’s hard to overlook the gaping hole in the middle of the block. The business buildings line up like teeth in a smile, and the “front tooth” that the fire took out infects the whole town. We’re all anxious to see what, if anything, fixes the gap.

The same can be said

Give Thanks for All Things

Dw.cdrIt’s been a very, very stressful week.

Literally minutes after finishing up pages to send to the imagesetter and before the press actually got rolling on last week’s edition, priorities changed. We were physically stunned by the news. While standing in confusion and cradled in a hurting grandmother’s arms, a telephone call confirmed the unthinkable. My 2-year-old grandson, Tucker, would be in surgery within hours to remove a brain tumor

There’s Something About a Haircut

Dw.cdrI noticed that the Chillicothe Beauty Academy is bringing back the $5 haircut, at least for a limited time as promoted in this week’s Ad Zone Christmas Express edition. I should go. Don’t ask me “How ya doin’?” unless you really want to know. I need a haircut. Bad.

Whenever I need a haircut, it’s about all I can think about. And yet, I grudge taking the time it requires.

What Thanksgiving Means to Me

Dw.cdrYesterday I felt so selfish. Of all the blessings for which I should be thankful, I admit being most thankful when the electrician showed up.

Nearly 30 people spend all or part of their work life here at GPCink making all sorts of things happen on deadline. We’ve got various “Plan B” contingencies in place, even duplicate equipment. But yesterday the plate burner suddenly quit, and “Plan B” also failed
